10 Minute Craft Dash

Hi there - happy Wednesday!

I am playing along with this week's 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge - and what a challenge it was! I have been a little hesitant to join in the fun, because I am the slowest crafter EVER, and I just barely made it under 10 minutes. Stepping out of our comfort zones is a good thing now and again, though, right?

Here is the card that I made, using one of Wplus9's new releases, Folk Art Flurries. I have heard that some of you have received your new stamps, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with them.

I started by stamping the snowflakes in red, twisting the image slightly and stamping it a second time to add a little depth and shadow. The small starbursts are from Iconic Christmas and are super versatile for filling in!

I was literally just under the wire with this one, finishing up at 9 minutes and 57 seconds - truly!

I was going to add a button or some twine, but had to call it good enough. Maybe working within a time frame will keep me from obsessing over every little detail. :)  The challenge ends on the 13th, so there is still time to participate. Hey, you only need 10 minutes!

Have a super day!

STAMPS: Folk Art Flurries, Iconic Christmas, Winter Wishes - Wplus9
CARDSTOCK: Kraft, Oatmeal - Wplus9
INK: Real Red, Crumb Cake, Tempting Turquoise - SU!; Antique Linen Distress Ink - Ranger Industries
